Trinidad and Tobago’s chances of retaining the Regional Under-17 title took a big hit yesterday after the home team were beaten by Jamaica in their rain-affected second round match at Bon Accord in Tobago yesterday.
The game was reduced from 50 overs to 26 because of rain the home team falied to bat out the overs, being dismissed for 124 off 26.1 overs.
The Jamaicans, playing their first match after touching down in the Tobago on Wednesday, replied with 125 for three off 26.2 overs to get their campaign for their second title off to a good start.
Jamaica, who were crowned champions in the inaugural tournament, were guided to their target thanks to an unbroken fourth wicket partnership between captain Michael Frew (32 not out) and vice-captain Javelle Glenn (40 not out) worth 77.
In the other games yesterday, the Windward Islands defeated the Leeward Islands by 36 runs while the Guyana, Barbados match was abandoned. T&T will face Guyana in Round three of the tournament today at Shaw Park while Jamaica face the Windwards at Louidore and the Leewards take on Barbados at Bon Accord.
All matches bowl off at 10 a.m.
